Book Review: White Witch, Black Curse

Title: White Witch, Black Curse (The Hollows, Book 7)
Author: Kim Harrison
Rating ***1/2
Tags paranormal, series, witches, vampires

This is a good though somewhat uneven series, some books better than others. It is a unique world, one in which paranormals were hidden before about 40 years ago, when many humans were wiped out by a disease, and the supernatural species then revealed themselves. The main character, Rachel Morgan, is a witch, living with a still living vampire, Ivy, who is also her partner.

In this volume, Rachel must deal with recovering memories of the death of her vampire lover, Kisten, as well as the reappearance of a ghost (literally) from her past.

Like a lot of the books in this series, this one suffers a bit from Too Much... Rachel has to deal with an overwhelming amount of bad stuff. It makes it exciting, but a little hard to believe and absorb.

But still a good and recommended series.
